    Stomvi S3 Big Bell Review – Initial feel of the build quality is second to none! After playing the same horn for 15 years, but trying many along the way, I must say this is the BEST horn I have ever played! Whether it is in church, a musical show, or a screaming big band gig, this horn can do it all! My sound has a broader feel and the horn is very in tune from below the staff up well past double D! It also gives me a better sense of my own sound allowing me to not overblow and play more efficiently and in turn I’m not getting tired! Playing the S3 Big Bell along with my Stomvi mouthpiece is a perfect match!

    Being a former loyal Bach Strad fan (which my ex husband decided to sell … hence he’s an ex!) when it came to purchasing a new horn, I decided to try a few horns (thinking that I may simply purchase another Bach!) I didn’t find any I like, until the shop said “oh, we’ve just got this Stomvi S3 in” … I tried it and instantly fell in love! The sound is awesome and I was more at ease with blowing this horn than the others I tried! I initially used my Bach mouthpiece with it, but am more than happy using a Stomvi mouthpiece instead! Love this horn!

  3. Robert Maccini (verified owner)

    Huge, fat sound; easy to play; nice to hold; beautiful look and build; great valves; versatile–as Lynn Nicholson would say, “What’s not to like?” I’m using the S3 primarily for big band lead (with Stomvi S14A Flex mouthpiece), but it works great with my small jazz group and pops orchestra stuff as well. I’ve owned probably 20 major-brand trumpets in my years, and this one stands head and shoulders above them all. You won’r regret owning an S3!

    By far the easiest trumpet I have ever played! The first time I played this at a vendor event, I knew it was my next trumpet. Never looked for another since.

    Stomvi S3.
    I love the horn, it’s so easy to get around. I use the horn for playing lead in the university jazz ensemble. I rarely ever get tired on this horn. The S3 cuts through the ensemble even while the band is playing at extreme volumes ! When I finish school I’ll be saving up for a VR2!

  8. Paul Holzen

    I bought my son Joe Holzen an S3 about 6 years ago after going back and forth between a couple other brands. He loves the versatility and the ease of slotting some of the higher notes. He’s a college music ed trumpet major now and he loves his S3!

  9. Don Davis

    I tried over thirty of the most iconic and recommended horns for lead trumpet playing at ITG 2018 over the course of 3 days, and only two other horns came close to the easy response and open blow of the S3 Big Bell, which I kept coming back to. Both of those instruments were custom-built horns costing five times more. I held off writing a review until now; I’ve been playing the S3 in two large jazz ensembles for over six months now (lead&solo), my progress from my practice routine has been significantly enhanced and the honeymoon still isn’t anywhere near over. I’m still amazed every time I play it. Of course about seven of my colleagues who play some of the best-known professional trumpets in the world have tried it and I’ve had nothing but positive reactions all around.
